The Fruit Bats and The Parson Redheads brought their folk rock aesthetics to Great American Music Hall.
Friday fun: ► Filter's Culture Collide festival continues its multinational merriment at various venues in Echo Park, highlighted by some some folks you probably already know (Yacht, Avi Buffalo, Ximena Sarinana, the Postelles) and some you might want to investigate — including Australia's WIM (that's their video for "See You Hurry," above), Demark's the Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Belgium's the Black Box Revelation and Australia's the Morning After Girls (whose late set Thursday was great). Plenty of SoCal artists too, including Jason Falkner, the Henry Clay People, Hands and Writer. Full venue, set time info [...]

Ah, first dates. They're often awkward, tedious evenings—a well-mannered exercise in bestowing a cool and lasting impression on a potential suitor. But they're often quite revealing. For instance, how often have you found yourself thumbing through a new friend's record collection to divine who they are via their taste in music? Even the most cursury glance reveals far more than a polite conversation masked as a dinner date. Such is the crux of our weekly First Date feature where the bands spill it themselves, all first-person [...]

Listen to it here: Seven Years Ago Seven Years Ago ”When You Love Somebody” is pretty good too, going for that classic rock rousin [...]

One more cycle of 365 days and it will roughly be seven years since the Parson Red Heads first moved from Portland, Ore., to City of Angels. Of course, we were sad to see them go when they decided to return to their original hometown last year, but the folk group, which centered around husband and wife Evan and Brett Marie Way and friend Sam Fowles, had contributed a large chunk to the local music scene during their five years as an L.A. band. The Parson Red Heads' live lineups often included musician friends in the [...]

All you need to do is be one of the [...]
We are only listening to The Parson Red Heads for their beautiful harmonies, folksy sentimental lyrics, and the hot ginger drummer girl.
Aaron Parsons , sin duda un artista que está dando de que hablar. Es director de arte, diseñador web y artista del internet. Su peculiar estilo nos transporta a los ochentas, a esos colores sólidos y chillantes como el rojo, amarillo y azul eléctrico, usa copias fotostáticas a blanco y negro combinadas con tipografía helvética "cromada", les gustan las imágenes en muy baja resolución y pixeleadas, y sin embargo gusta mucho, tanto que ahora colaboró para la nueva campaña de Alexander McQueen Otoño-Invierno 2011 fotografiada por David Sims , también para el video de M.I.A., los Tings [...]
So I really excited that Project Runway came back last night, although last season was super disappointing because Mondo lost, I'm still upset about it. The night began with the casting session where most of the designers told sad stories about the struggles in their lives and how hard they have working to be where they are in their careers. The most interesting of the back stories was Bert Keeter's. He graduated Parsons in 1978 and went to work for Halston and Bill Blass. Fancy! He quit the industry in 1992 when he partner and best friend [...]
